leavesSept. 12, 2016 - Residents who live within the City limits may begin raking leaves over the curb on Monday, Oct. 17. Leaves should be raked into the street along the curb or to the shoulder in uncurbed areas. Residents are asked to rake the leaves into low piles over the curb, and not cover the storm sewer catch basins..

Fall leaf collection schedule:
  • Week of Oct. 17 – Residents are to rake leaves into low piles, taking care not to cover catch basins.

To avoid traffic and sight obstructions, put leaves in small piles in the gutter close to the curb. On major streets where heavy traffic prohibits leaves in the gutter, such as High and Pickard, residents should rake the leaves into low piles in the rights-of-way, between the curb and sidewalk.

Yard waste bags should not be used. Bagged leaves, branches, grass clippings, and garden cuttings will not be picked up.
